      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Whitewater WMA

Recommended Posts

Just a question for anyone who knows anything about the area. I live in southern MN now(just moved from the anoka area). And have tried to look up anywhere near that waterfowl hunting can be had(I know rochester has some good geese hunting). But I really want a chance at a few ducks. I am not looking to try and bag a limit every day, but do want to bring out a few first timers to try and enjoy the sport like I do. SO basically I just want to see a few ducks. Does Whitewater hold any kind of numbers? Does it get hunted very hard during the season? How hard is it to get the one blind they do have out there? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also if anyone knows of anywhere else that one could go that is fairly close(within a hour or 2 away). Thanks in advance!

I trout fish there every spring and there were geese in nest platforms and mallard hen houses even though there was no water ! I know you can't be far from the Missisippi backwaters what more can you need!!!!

Early and late season there are areas on the streams that you can jump shoot. If you have time the backwaters on the Mississippi have huge numbers of waterfowl that pass through late in the year. They get refuge wise and can go through very fast. Like most areas the weekdays are much better as far as hunting pressure. The river bottoms are huge and have many options so give yourself time to learn them if you get a chance. Can be some great hunting down there. Is big country that can get confusing fast so a GPS can really help. Good luck with it.

Thanks a ton. I plan on trying to make it a thing if I can find the right areas to hunt. From the sounds of it, it can be hit or miss(like most of the waterfowl hunting in Minnesota!). But I plan on doing a lot of scouting, and putting in my time. Once again thanks a ton!

    • Here are a few pictures of the little peanut aka TazMania.    I got waaay behind on introducing him to birds and with work and the weather it was a slow start but once I finally got him on birds he really took off. He has an incredible nose and he is close working which for me and my family a$$ is a benefit. I was worried about going away from Springer's but  I am not disappointed and love the cocker. 
    • Diced spam fried up then add the eggs and scramble up is a fish house morning favorite for us.
    • First batch done, hopefully these will pair well with a cold beverage and football! Skol!    Last weekends football fare, beef burnt ends, lasted about 15 min with my neighbors. I'm going to try it with pork shoulders this weekend. I'll grill up the chunks during pregame tomorrow. Skol!
    •     Yah, then wash it down with a High Life
    • That's a cute little carpet muncher. 
    • There is no reason to get on the roof! For the ice and snow get a roof rake, keep problem areas free of both. For leaves and pine needles get gutter helmet. But stay off roof! One fall could change more then a stinky house.
    • I would be perfectly fine with that. Heck, it's no different from not even winning your conference and getting in the final 4 only to have the refs miss obvious holding penalties so you can have a winning TD pass. I'll take that any day
    • Only missing the toast, hot sauce and ketchup! Good stuff Manerd!
    • If you eat fried spam on wonder bread with velveeta cheese........ You might be a redneck.   
    • I was just looking at the chamber type vacuum baggers, and in the comments it was pointed out that the bags for the more expensive chamber sealers are much cheaper than for the "foodsaver" type sealers.   So if you do a lot of vacuum bagging, the chamber type might be worth considering.
